All Saints Chapel and Morris Family Burial Ground is a historic Episcopal church located at Morris in Otsego County, New York. The church is a small stone Gothic Revival style chapel built from about 1866 to 1868. The rectangular building is three bays wide and four bays deep under a steeply sloping gable roof with slate shingles. It features a projecting central bell-cote tower and a large rose window. The first burial in the Morris Family Burial Ground dates to 1791 and it remains an active family burial ground. Also on the property is a wagon shed dating to the 1860s.[2]
